Two regional companies announced Wednesday that they will make Pittsburgh their headquarters — beckoned from their suburban bases by a desire to be in a thriving big city that could help increase their profiles.
Michael Baker International and the parent company of First National Bank of Pennsylvania aren’t pulling up the stakes and relocating all their employees to Pittsburgh from their old headquarters. They have simply identified Pittsburgh as the place they will call home.
Michael Baker International LLC, a $1.2 billion construction-engineering company, will move its headquarters and 65 workers from Moon to the two top floors of Bank of New York Mellon Center, Downtown, in December. It will still retain a significant presence in Moon.
F.N.B. Corp. said it will ditch Hermitage, Mercer County, as the headquarters city for the region’s third-largest bank. It said the decision to make the Pittsburgh North Shore its home base will not impact employees.
